This week on the podcast, Chaos & Carnage pick the wrong videotape to watch, and learn hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. It’s a well of a good time!
One curse. One cure. One podcast. One week to find us.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
The best horror movie to come from Japan since Godzilla. Don’t expect to be alive after watching Ringu! But make sure to tell everyone else to watch in the week you get to live in between.
If you are a new listener to the PaNcast, be aware there are spoilers and expletives ahead! We break down the movie, go through a summary, offer analysis, trivia, arbitrary awards, reviews, ratings, fanfiction and more!
“People watch the most horrifying movie alive….well the second most horrifying movie alive because Showgirls was available in Japan and then a week later they died. And things went awry.” – Carnage’s Five Second Summary
Chaos and Carnage go away to a cabin in the woods and, while there, they make sure to rent a videotape — specifically, the one non-descript video tape in the bookcase of tapes. They thought it was porn, but unfortunately, they were wrong. It was the one videotape to rule them all. Ringu.
One watching of this video tape, and you only get one week to live before you are mysteriously shocked (like scared, not like electrocuted) to death. And after one listen of this week’s podcast, you will surely seek Chaos and Carnage out for their horrible mispronunciations of the Japanese actors, actresses and characters. Why do we do foreign horror again? I mean, sure, these films are awesome. But the way we struggle with names and words during them? Damn.
Will Reiko be able to end the curse? Will she die trying to save her very independent kid? Will Chaos and Carnage ever be able to get through a foreign horror movie without making asses out of themselves? Take a listen and you be the judge!
Go check out Ringu if you care about being spoiled like a girl who was given a whole well to herself forever and ever. Then make sure to check out this week’s episode for a dissection of this lovely film.
Ringu is streaming on Shudder.
